  1. Oh, sweet potato pie! Brings back memories of my grandmother’s cooking. She was a great cook.

    This looks and sounds delicious!

    1. Yes, I agree. Our Grandmother’s cooking always seem to taste so different. Perhaps it’s got something to do with her being our grandmother.

      I am sure she was a great cook too.
